This soup is very thick, almost like a purée. If you want a thinner soup, add more broth.

Ingredients

1/4 cup butter, unsalted
2 large leeks, sliced (white and light green prts only)
4 medium white potatoes, cut into 2-inch cubes
3 medium parships, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
5 1/2 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Fresh chopped parsley

Instructions

  1.  In a large stockpot, melt butter over medium heat. Add leeks and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add potatoes and parsnips; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in vegetable broth; cover and simmer until vegetables are fork tender, about 30 minutes
  2. Working in batches, puree soup in a food processor or blender. Return to pan. Add salt and pepper
  3. Garnish with fresh parsley when serving.
